Hasegawa 1:72 VF-25F/S Messiah Released

A year ago we posted that Hasegawa was going to release a kit of the VF-25 from Macross Frontier even though it was thought that Bandai had a death grip on the license.

Not his first from that line, Cool8tor continues to showcase his talent and technique, not only choosing the beautiful colors for the standard scheme, but applying weathering that makes it hard to believe that what you’re looking at in these photographs are tiny scaled models.
